League releases unprecedented study on orchestra subscriptions

“Reimagining the Orchestra Subscription Model,” a study by the Oliver Wyman management consulting organization that was commissioned by the League of American Orchestras, is the first of its kind for American orchestras. Using the largest-ever orchestra sales dataset, it draws on ten years of data from four million customers across 45 orchestras of varying sizes as well as a profile and preferences survey of 4,000 people who attended an orchestra concert in the last five years. The final conclusions are informed by a dynamic market simulation that tested the willingness-to-pay of 1,000 people making 10,000 purchasing decisions in order to reveal the relative attractiveness of various package features. The result is a compelling set of recommendations; in essence, the building blocks for future audience and donor development strategies.
